Twitter is an awesome platform that is widely used by many people worldwide. There are many social media available on the internet and Twitter is one of it’s kind. Next to Facebook, Twitter is the most used social media of all time. Previously in Twitter, there was no option to upload images, short videos or gifs. Only you can type and post text. But as time passes and new updates emerge and in the next versions Twitter enabled users the option to upload short videos, images and gif files.

Once it got the option to upload images & videos users got very excited and started uploading lots and lots of files to Twitter. Some videos are so funny that the people can’t stop retweeting it. There is an option on Twitter to save the tweet that you like so much. It may consist of text, gifs or videos. But you can download those videos if you like to. Only you can save them in the Twitter and can view it any time in Twitter alone. If the person who uploaded the short video decides to take down the content then it’s gone forever. You lose it.

This is why most people like to download those short videos that they see in the twitter. They need to download them and store in their hard-disk or other storage device so that they can view them whenever they want. But Twitter doesn’t directly allow any one to download the content they share on Twitter so we need some third party tool so that we can download them with ease.
